Redbourn Neighbourhood Watch



What is Neighbourhood Watch?

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the biggest and most successful crime prevention initiatives ever, now involving millions of people around the country. It is based on the simple idea that you and your neighbours can help to reduce crime and create a better place to live, work and play.

What is HRSW?

HRSW stands for Harpenden, Redbourn, Wheathampstead and Sandridge. We have joined together to allow us to share information as we are more rural than the larger communities within the District. We have a constitution and meet regularly to discuss all matters associated to the management NHW within our villages.

How does it work?

By being a good community neighbour, you can help to make our community more secure by:

  • Looking out for your neighbours by keeping an eye on those who are elderly or vulnerable, watching out for your neighbours' homes while they are away and reporting any suspicious activity.

  • Receiving regular updates from your local policing team about what is happening locally and how you can help, for example to look out for stolen property, finding missing people or identify suspects from CCTV images.

  • Receiving and sharing crime prevention advice to help keep you and your neighbours safe and your homes and property secure.

  • Forming or joining a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme with you neighbours to work together and to keep your street safe.

The Neighbourhood Watch Scheme needs you and you can do as much or as little as you like!
